El Papa Francisco

Country: Argentina
Director: Brian Maya
Producer: Brian Maya
Screenplay: Brian Maya

A Pope from Latin America and a Jesuit Pope sounded like science fiction just five years ago, but now is a reality. Pope Francis has been a new breath of fresh air for the Catholic Religion, and this documentary explains to us why he is the way he is, and not a new way of being a Pope, but a whole life dedicated to the same principles. We get to meet Pope Francis through his family, his friends, and people that worked with him, from the time he was an Argentinian kids playing soccer in the streets, all the way to the head of the Jesuit order in the South of Latin America.
